A Day Wrapped in Happiness

Thanks for dropping in ...

A while ago I posted a "Window Frame" card made with diecuts using My Favorite Things Spring Garden Die-namic set. If you missed that post, you can see my card here.

I actually ended up making quite a few of these "bouquets", and finally got around to using more of them on this card:

I sponged my sky on white cardstock with my "go to" ink colour for this purpose, Stampin' Up's Soft Sky. The double layer of grass was adhered directly on the bottom of this panel. After diecutting the Wheelbarrow, I sponged the edges lightly with Distress Pumice Stone to soften the edges, inserted my ready-made bouquets through the "slit" provided by the diecut, and popped the whole thing up on dimensionals before placing on the grass.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment in black and layered the card onto a black cardstock panel (which you can't see because of the black BG). The sentiment is from a Penny Black set that has some lovely sayings with a beautiful font.

And, lets face it, happiness is definitely what an avid gardener (like me) feels when one has a wheelbarrow full of flowers at the ready to plant! :-)

Hoping your day - whatever you're doing - is "wrapped in happiness" too!
